# Which of the following has the greatest momentum

## Which of the following objects has greatest momentum?

forward moving object

A less massive object can never have more momentum than a more massive object. Two identical objects are moving in opposite directions at the same speed.

**The forward moving object**will have the greatest momentum. An object with a changing speed will have a changing momentum.## How do you know what has the greatest momentum?

Momentum is directly proportional to the object’s mass and also its velocity. Thus

**the greater an object’s mass or the greater its velocity**, the greater its momentum.## Which of the following would have the greatest change in momentum?

The momentum change is dependent upon the velocity change; the

**object with the greatest velocity change**has the greatest momentum change.## Which vehicle has the most momentum?

truck

**The truck**has more momentum than the car. By momentum, we mean inertia in motion. Momentum is the mass of an object multiplied by its velocity. A moving truck has more momentum than a car moving at the same speed because the truck has more mass.

## What are some examples of momentum?

**Examples of momentum**

- A train moving at 120 km/h.
- A baseball flying through the air.
- A heavy truck moving.
- A bullet fired from a gun.
- When you throw a ball at someone and it hits him hard. It is an indication of how hard it would be to stop the object.

## How do you find the momentum?

The Momentum Calculator uses the formula

**p=mv**, or momentum (p) is equal to mass (m) times velocity (v).## Which of the two cars has more momentum?

The car with a greater momentum is the

**faster car**because the two factors which affect the magnitude of the momentum are the mass and the velocity of a traveling body.## What has more momentum a truck or motorcycle?

For a truck and a bike to have the same momentum, the mass of the vehicle times the velocity of the vehicle must be the same for both of them. Therefore, the lighter,

**less massive bike**will have a much higher velocity than the truck.## What has more momentum a car or a bike?

Explanation: Taking the formula for momentum to be p=mv this is the mass multiplied by the velocity. … The

**bicycle**however has both mass and velocity and therefore has the larger momentum of the pair.## Which has more momentum if it moves twice as fast?

**A moving car**has momentum. If it moves twice as fast its momentum is twice as much. lighter car, the momentum of the heavier car is as much. … The recoil momentum of a gun that kicks is (more than) (less than) (the same as the momentum of the bullet it fires.

## Which has a greater momentum a heavy truck at rest?

Which has a greater momentum, a heavy truck at rest or a moving automobile? The truck at rest has no speed, hence no momentum. So

**the moving automobile has greater momentum**.## What are the two factors momentum depends on?

The amount of momentum that an object has is dependent upon two variables: how much stuff is moving and how fast the stuff is moving. Momentum depends upon the variables

**mass and velocity**. In terms of an equation, the momentum of an object is equal to the mass of the object times the velocity of the object.## When comparing the momentum of two objects which of the following is correct?

When comparing the momentum of two moving objects, which of the following is correct?

**The object with the higher velocity will have less momentum if the masses are equal**. The more massive object will have less momentum if its velocity is greater.## Which has more momentum a huge car that is not moving or a small car that is moving?

Which has more momentum, a huge truck that is not moving or a small toy cart that is moving? …

**A moving car has momentum**.## Which of the following factors affects the momentum of a moving object?

Momentum is affected by

**the mass of the object and its velocity (or speed)**. Momentum is mass in motion!## Which case has the greatest velocity change?

case B

The velocity change is greatest in

**case B**. In each case the initial velocity is the same. In case B, the object rebounds in the opposite direction with a greater speed than in case A. This is equivalent to a change from +10 m/s to -5 m/s; whereas, case A has a change from +10 m/s to -2 m/s.## When two objects collide what happens to their momentum?

In most collisions between two objects,

**one object slows down and loses momentum**while the other object speeds up and gains momentum.## Which of the following situations is an example of a significant change in momentum?

Which of the following situations is an example of a significant change in momentum?

**A tennis ball is hit into a net.**… Momentum is not conserved for a system of objects in a head-on collision. Two objects move separately after colliding, and both the total momentum and total kinetic energy remain constant.
